Background: Myeloma bone disease (MBD) can cause bone destruction and increase the level of Ca 2+ concentration in the bone marrow microenvironment by stimulating osteoclastic differentiation. Nevertheless, the relationships between MBD and highly efficient stimuli of Ca 2+ in multiple myeloma (MM) progression, and possible regulatory mechanisms are poorly defined. Here, we reported that the nonselective cation channel transient receptor potential vanilloid 2 (TRPV2) plays a functional role in Ca 2+ oscillations and osteoclastogenesis. Methods: To investigate the expression of TRPV2 in MM, we analyzed publicly available MM data sets and performed immunohistochemistry in MM patients. The correlations between TRPV2 expression levels and osteoclast-related cytokines were analyzed. Fluo-4 staining and ELISA assays were used to assess the regulated function of TRPV2 in intracellular Ca 2+ and cytokines. Western blotting and Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) assays were performed to explore the signaling pathway of TRPV2-induced osteoclastic differentiation. Real-time PCR, Western blotting, ELISA and tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRAP) staining were performed to detect the biological effects of TRPV2 inhibitor on osteoclastogenesis. Results: The functional expression of TRPV2, involved in the osteolysis through gating the calcium influx, was changed in the MM cells cultured in a high Ca 2+ environment. Mechanistically, TRPV2 modulates nuclear factor-κB ligand (RANKL)-dependent osteoclastic differentiation through the Ca 2+ -calcineurin-NFAT signaling pathway. Of clinical relevance, systemic administration with SKF96365 could attenuate the MM-induced osteoclast formation in vitro. Conclusions: Our study uncovers the possible roles of TRPV2, which enhances MBD, suggesting that targeting osteocyte-MM cells interactions through blockade of TRPV2 channel may provide a promising treatment strategy in MM.
